Hyperloop Transportation Technologies says its full-scale passenger capsule has arrived at its research center in Toulouse, France, where the company is building a 320-meter test track.

The Hyperloop capsule, called the Quintero 1, was constructed in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain. It is built using what HTT calls “Vibranium,” a “specially made dual-layer smart composite material.” The Hyperloop capsule is 105 feet long and weighs 5 tons.

HTT says the remaining tubes needed to complete the Toulouse Hyperloop test track will be arriving soon, so the full system can be assembled this year.
